USE­FUL RE­SOURCES FOR LEARN­ING

HWM (Malaysia) - - THE INTERNET IS YOUR UNIVERSITY -

SKILL­SHARE

Ei­ther cre­ate your own lit­tle course for sim­ple skills or take short cour­ses from other teach­ers for as low as US$20. The cour­ses are bite-sized and usu­ally project-based, where you learn a skill by com­plet­ing a project. Un­like the stan­dard MOOC, you can reg­is­ter as soon as a course starts, with no de­fin­i­tive be­gin­ning or end time – start and stop when­ever you like.

DE­GREED

A rather in­ter­est­ing con­cept, De­greed is about cre­at­ing ‘the new diploma’ where it will com­pile both real-world, non-vir­tual cour­ses you took off­line and the ones you take online into a sin­gle tran­script.

KHAN ACADEMY

Think of this as an online re­pos­i­tory of in­for­ma­tion where you learn things in a cus­tomised in­ter­face, as well as self-di­rected en­vi­ron­ment. For par­ents and teach­ers, they can use the Khan en­vi­ron­ment to in­ter­act with chil­dren and stu­dents in an online en­vi­ron­ment.
